Olympian Brittney Reese shames Coast


U.S. Olympian and Gulfport native Brittney Reese took to social media today to voice her concern on how Black Beach Weekend is received by residents.
In a post, Reese says: “I am disappointed, but I am not shocked on how they are treating you guys. The comments are the most racist things I have read in a while and it’s sad y’all can’t enjoy a weekend without ‘people fearing for their lives.’”
Reese refers to the mostly negative response on social media from residents who cited trash and trespassing as major concerns.
Police say more than 60,000 people took part in the weekend activities.
